Geneva, AL

The City of Geneva is located in southeast Alabama. Geneva is a city rich in southern tradition and community pride. It is small enough to offer that small town charm and southern hospitality but big enough to offer the everyday conveniences of a larger town.



The “Slocomb Tomato Festival” is the biggest and one of the best in the region held each year on the third weekend of June. The celebration is held at the peak of tomato season and different types and varieties can be purchased at the festival, the most popular being the Globe Tomatoes.




In the middle of a quaint small city centered by a city square sitting at the junction of State Highways 52, 167 and 123, is Hartford, Alabama, population 2624.  Founded in 1897, the business and social activity of Hartford still centers around its square.

The square’s focal point is a graceful fountain depicting a curly-headed youth and a long-legged water bird.  Residents have treasured this lovely fountain for over 100 years.  Hartford, dubbed the garden spot of the state, is a rare combination of progressiveness and charm.

 CITY OF Samson


Situated on a spot of land in what was formerly a part of the Mississippi Territory, is Samson, Alabama. What we know as the “Wiregrass” was at one time the Indian reservation of the Lower Creek Indians. The town has adopted the slogan, “Samson…We Grow Friendly People.”  This phrase seems to genuinely capture the hospitality and warmth of the 2,300 residents. Along with a relaxed and friendly lifestyle, Samson offers something of interest for everyone. Recreational opportunities abound at nearby major fishing and hunting areas. The largest Alabama State Forest is less than five miles away. Friendly people, a quiet atmosphere, and a commitment to preserving the past all make Samson one of Alabama’s best surprises.
